Keynote speakers will be Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell (Oxford), Professor Martin Willis (Cardiff), and Professor Angela Wright (Sheffield).
The BSLS invites proposals for 20-minute papers, panels of three papers, or special roundtables on any subjects within the field of science (including medicine and technology), and literatures in the broadest sense, including theatre, film, and television.
Please send an abstract (200 words) and short biographical note (50 words) to Katherine Ebury and Helena Ifill at firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 18.00 GMT on Thursday 19th of December 2019 (please note that this is a new deadline, extended in view of the recent university strikes in Britain). Please include the abstract and biographical note in the body of the email.
